    was there a light pointing at your camera? Your top left has white noise. I would burn around the model.

    Try desaturating it and giving it a "classic" feel.........

    That's what I would change. Get rid of that, and I think it would be pretty good.

    You light needs a black "flag" or a barn door set to keep its spill light from polluting the area to the left hand side of the frame.

    I'd desaturate, like others said.

    You've got to figure out a way to get her face back to a flesh tone rather than WHITE--it is overexposed to my eye.

    Another thing I'd play with is going in a black and white direction and boost the contrast.

    Simply my two shiny copper coins.

    More flesh tones, much more, and re-compose so there is more frame in front of the girl.
